14 DSV Code of Conduct ENSURING HEALTH AND SAFETY AT WORK Safeguarding the well-being and supporting the actions of DSV’s employees are essential to the success and future of DSV. A healthy and safe physical and psychological working environment should contribute to creating job satisfaction, avoiding work-related illness and preventing accidents at work for all DSV employees. All employees are entitled to a healthy, safe and secure workplace where no one is exposed to unnecessary risk. All DSV managers are accountable for creating a healthy and safe work environment for employees and third parties, which includes maintenance of equipment. Safety must be ensured through appropriate instructions, which must be observed. Managers must establish an understanding of essential safety measures within their area of responsibility and initiate improvements when necessary. Although DSV and its managers have the primary responsibility, all DSV employees are responsible for their own health and safety when performing their work and must therefore comply with all safety regulations and processes as well as exercise proper care to prevent accidents. DSV prohibits the consumption or being under the influence of drugs or alcohol at work. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT As one of the global leading providers of transport and logistics services, DSV is committed to take on its share of the responsibility to reduce the environmental impact through reducing our CO 2 emissions. SUSTAINABLE AND INNOVATIVE TRANSPORT AND LOGISTICS SYSTEMS To the extent possible, you must look for, and offer, sustainable and innovative transport and logistics systems that continually reduce the environmental impact of DSV, our customers and our suppliers. You should always aim to contribute to the constant development and improvement of the reduction of CO 2 emissions, so that our services reflect the environmental considerations. COMPLYING WITH PUBLIC AUTHORITY REQUIREMENTS Through our employees, DSV wants to lead an open and constructive dialogue with authorities, shareholders, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders about the environmental impact related to the activities of the DSV Group. CAREFUL SELECTION OF SUPPLIERS DSV's suppliers are selected based on the criteria formulated in the DSV Supplier Code of Conduct, which is distributed to suppliers and available on www.dsv.com. The DSV Supplier Code of Conduct describes what is considered appropriate business conduct by suppliers when they perform services on behalf of or supply services or products to DSV. You must ensure that suppliers are familiar with the DSV Supplier Code of Conduct and take relevant steps to ensure compliance.
